Hey, guys, thanks for the links to clocks! They're beautiful!
I sent the links to Dad, as something he could make. He's been looking for something smaller than his cedar chests, to sell on eBay, for instance. Something that could be shipped, and wouldn't need to be kd.
And the shaker clock looks just like the furniture he builds for me!
For a fairly easy clock, take a piece of barn board (about 12 -14 inches long). Mark the center of where you want your clock face, then determine the size of your time ring and mark where your numbers will go. Drill your shaft hole to fit your clock movement.
For the numbers, I use decorative tacks for the 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10, and 11; with a larger decorative nail for the 3, 6, 9, and 12.
For a movement, you can choose from a simple quartz movement to a chiming movement, pendulum movement, radio controlled, etc. Mount your clock movement and hands, then hang your clock.
I just wish I could find more barn boards. I use the bottom portion so the bottom of the clock has a rough weathered look. The top edge is not as important, since it is usually out of sight.
If you have a scrollsaw, you could make anything from very basic to advanced. For some ideas, check out my site . The site is under construction but I work on it whenever I get a chance.
